Braving The Broken-Day 7

Braving The Broken-Day 7-Grace In The Seasons Of Life-God's grace is beyond amazing. He continually sprinkles His grace all over my life, it is definitely my favorite seasoning. I am always ready, and more than willing, to show grace to others. But, when it comes to myself, I tend to really beat myself up,
when I mess up. I cannot show myself grace, never. No matter the situation, I need to realize that it is ok, to forgive myself. Anything that happens, I always take the blame. Saying I am sorry, is a constant for me. My counselor, is working with me, trying to teach me new habits.

Sometimes it can be really hard to forgive ourselves. I'm so glad that God is more than willing to forgive me.

I used to have a harder time giving myself grace. Forgiving myself for past sins was so hard. But, I finally realized that if I focused more on my guilt than I did on God's forgiveness, in a way I was being prideful. It's like I was telling God that my opinion of myself was more important than His. Not to mention, the enemy of our souls delights in miring us in guilt, paralyzing us with negative self-thoughts. He wants us ineffective. So, breaking free depends on listening to Truth - God's Truth - which trumps anything else.

And that TRUTH is that God loves us, forgives us, and remembers our sins no more. He is gracious with our shortcomings, knowing that we are weak. And He would want us free...

GOD BLESS!
